No one who works in the industry posts here, they all find Jeff intolerable.

Would you like blue steak and bran?

^I'd rather have my Blue Streak with buzz bars, and big blue padded seats with no seat divider and headrests :) Some scars will never heal.

I love blue steak. The rarer the better!

Has anyone read or even heard of someone who blogged pretty thoroughly about their summer working at an amusement park? I'd be interested to read something like that because it's probably the closest I'll ever come to living it.

If anyone did, the likelyhood of them still having that job for very long is not good.

I know one PR guy who just quit to go work in TV in Milwaukee. My bad.

@Dutchman why do you say that?

Because park employees are not allowed to publicly allowed to disclose company secrets, and writing about your amusement park job on a Blog would make it too easy to slip and say something that they are not supposed to say. It's kind of like allowing a seasonal employee represent the company, which is something a full-timer should do, in order to control the information shared.

Each year that I worked at CP, we were told by management that they weren't even comfortable with allowing us to use the internet at all. We would get fired if we were found telling secrets, like what the rumor for the next new ride was going to be, or about a recent accident on a ride at the park.

On the other hand, they did provide employees with internet access...

But what about now for all the employees that don't work there anymore? Certainly someone must be willing to write a memoir of sorts.

My Cedar Point memoir would be a sharply jaded, and immorally disgusting piece of literature... And Those would be the best parts. :)

I'm intrigued by the immorally disgusting part...

I hope to some day, when Im older and retired, spend the winter/spring working at Disney World as either the Mayor of Main St. USA or split time between being a Haunted Mansion Butler and a Hall of Presidents cast member; I would also probably settle for a job where I worked mostly indoors at Epcot. Other then working for the mouse on a part time basis later in life though, there is no way I would ever try to make a career out of the theme park business.

And some of the nicest people I've met at Disney and Universal were retirees. I'd be all about that as well.

I've thought about doing the snowbird Seasonal Temp thing in Orlando when I retire. That's a long way off though.

My wife already has a retirement career as the Fairy Godmother planned out.

Wow, I was standing up for Jeff with a joking reference to this comment and I get nailed?

Gotta love being enough of a personality to get the park reps to come out and comment on you specifically. I don't turn them away, I draw them into participating.

That goes well beyond intolerable. :)

Truth be told, Gonch, it's your eyebrows that keep me coming back ... very Robb Alvey-esque.
